Fun in my fabric world....

Celebrations and starting over....

This week my baby boy turns 22! Eeeek...when did I get so old?
Fortunately I had him home for a night from university...it was nice to cook his favourite foods and watch him savour a dinner made with love just for him. 
I loved the card I bought him....at least he seems to still tolerate my humour.
Happy Birthday Lewis!
And, I also started this week with a sense of determination...I need to make time to stitch because, as my friend Lea says..."a stitch a day stops my whole world from unravelling!" At the moment life feels like there are a few dropped stitches, so this week I will stop whining and pick those pesky stitches up!
After dinner I tidied the kitchen, hung some washing out and made some calls...then walked into the much neglected sewing room...where I found someone tossing things about...hmmmm!
 He has also had fun with my aqua soul searching block...I just need to sort it out again...then I only have a red block to do and the quilt I started at Material Obsession is done...big tick! 
So, I need to hop off the computer and pick up that needle....

Oh my...all that yummy turquoise fabric! Can't wait to see that block come together. Happy birthday to Lewis...I could have sworn he just had his 21st? Stitching is very important for your soul...good luck!

Ahhh you mean to tell me your babies grow up, get facial hair and move out! Not sure if that is a good or bad thing! Loving the aqua combo...your cat must have been turned into my Mr 6 yr...he was rolling on my quilt top....lucky I had just finished piecing it together! I like your friends saying...that really resinates for me.

My baby will turn 22 in September, so I know somewhat how you feel! Mine lives a few states away, and how I miss cooking his favorite foods for him.

Things and events are moving along nicely! Happy belated 22 birthday Lewis! Love that Bernina in the picture! Such a work horse. I have the 1090 and I wouldn't trade it for a newer model. Cheers!
